Dell Open Manage Create Raid

I am setting up a server using the dell open manage CD. I created a RAID array for some of the disks and installed an OS. I want to now create a RAID array for the rest of the disks but can't seem to find where this is done from.
When I try boot from the open manage CD it seems to think its a fresh install and can't pick up the current RAID.
I install dell open manage on the OS but also can't see anywhere to create the RAID. I thought the dell open manage may get installed so there is an options some where on boot up but I can't seem to find any.

How can I configure RAID?

I think the piece you are missing is installing the Dell Server Administrator. This is the Windows service that allows you hardware access (ie. RAID controller configuration).

You can also simply reboot the server and do it directly from the BIOS.  Look for the PERC card to initialize and I think it's CTRL-M to enter the config.

OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA) is the management software designed to interface with and monitor all the server hardware, including drives and arrays.

In OMSA, go to Storage, PERC, Information/Configuration, and Create/New from dropdown menu of Available Tasks for the controller.

What server model do you have?  Which RAID controller are you working with?
